AP

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) should veto an anti-gay discrimination bill waiting on her desk, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Tuesday.

Every major state business group along with both of the state’s Republican senators — John McCain and Jeff Flake — have called on Brewer to veto the “religious freedom” bill passed by the Arizona GOP state legislature.

Brewer is expected to make a decision by Friday.
